    then his skills have upgraded. maybe if one focuses on that instead of equipment, then your photos will be just as good if not better than your friend's.

    Dont really see how upgrading to a better camera would magically transform photos.
    At most the images would be technically 'better' (cleaner with less noise etc). But for things like composition and creativity, well, those cant be upgraded with a simple visit to a shop.

    Would you feel uneasy and wanting to get a camera better than his? Yes, skill that counts the most but would still go head to get a camera that could produced a higher image quality than his one despite would spend quite a lot of money but at least 'defeated' him and thus make you a happy man :-)

    If you're unhappy or jealous; ask him to teach you how he takes his shots. Afterall you guys are friends ma.. Don't worry la, just shoot and enjoy yourself, no need get so competitive or whatsoever. My 2cents!

    The phrase, "Keeping up with the Joneses" seems applicable here...

    Won't it feel better if you can improve your skills and take better photos with what you have, versus the latest and greatest gear?

    So, what is the model of your camera and what has he upgrade to? Then we can see whether there is really a vast difference in image quality between the two models...

That's probably a good measure of equipment capabilities - his Lumix against your DSLR.

    My bad.

    It was an Associateship and a Fellowship, and not two Fellowships.

    David uses/used a Panasonic TZ-15 and FZ50.
